Show a teacher your appreciation and give a gift of hope this summer 

Parents and guardians can buy an online gift for their children’s teachers in exchange for a donation towards the work of Mary’s Meals, who are now feeding over 2.2 million children, in 20 of the world’s poorest countries, across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted and for just €18.30, a child can receive daily meals, in their place of education, for an entire school year. It is really two gifts in one: children can send a beautiful e-card via email to thank their teacher, while simultaneously giving a gift of hope to hungry children across the globe.
